2. Amber Falls Winery and Cellars, Hampshire, TN

This winery is great to visit year-round but is especially beautiful in the fall. Hidden in the mountains, Amber Falls Winery is well worth a visit if you’re in Middle Tennessee.

Sign up for one of their wine and food pairings to sample the house made wine, gourmet cheeses and cured meats.

6. Grinder’s Switch Winery, Centerville, TN
